THE UNYIELDING BY SHELLY LAURENSTON – REVIEW

the unyielding cover
Stieg Engstrom, Angriest Viking Ever, has got big problems. The human Viking Clans of earth are in danger of being obliterated—along with the rest of the world—and the only one who may be able to save them is a super pain-in-the-ass Crow. Most people annoy Stieg, but this is the one woman he really can’t stand…

Erin Amsel loves being a Crow! Why wouldn’t she when the other Viking Clans are so hilariously arrogant and humorless? She’s not about to let all that come to an end! She just didn’t expect to be shoulder to shoulder in battle with Stieg. Then again, he’s so easy to torment—and also kind of cute.

With the future of the world riding on them, Stieg knows he’ll have to put aside his desperate need to kiss the smirk right off Erin’s face. Wait. What? He didn’t mean that—did he? No! They have one goal: To conquer the idiots. Because nothing bugs Stieg more than when idiots win. If only he can keep himself from suddenly acting like one…

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

The Unyielding (Call Of Crows) is a fast-paced, roller coaster of a ride! Erin is a Crow, and can piss anyone off in just a few minutes. Each Crow has a special ability, and she has the ability of fire. She must team up with Stieg to get a sword to help stop Ragnarok from happening. Erin can even piss of the Gods with her annoying, snarky attitude. I love her!! Steig is a hunky Raven who is told to watch her back. Oh! Did I mention that a Dragon has the sword. This book will have you rolling on the floor with laughter. These two have so much chemistry between them that it is a wonder that they don’t go up in flames when they are around each other. I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next. I recommend this book and series to everyone. I give THE UNYIELDING 5/5 STARS.

Excerpt

 

Kerrich entered the coven house with a smile on his face, walking past all the other vampires with a sense of self-importance, for he had news for Delilah, news that would intrigue her greatly.
He walked down the hall toward Delilah’s master bedroom, not making eye contact with the girls who watched him with curiosity. Of course they should stare. Kerrich knew how pleasing he was to look at. But he would never pay these girls any mind; his attention and complete devotion belonged to Delilah.
He stopped before her door, waiting for his mistress to give him permission to enter. Not a second after, the door opened by no other force than simply Delilah’s will. His goddess sat on her lavishly garnished canopy bed, wearing a penoir of white lace, reading a book by candlelight. She is more lovely everyday, he thought. She is like the Moon, with luminescent flesh and ringlets that are spun of the night itself.
She raised her pretty eyes from the pages of her book and trapped him in her gaze.
“What news do you bring?” she asked, her voice like tiny bells.
He came around her bed and knelt on the floor beside her.
“I have been keeping a close eye on him, just as you instructed,” he said. “And I have noticed a strange new development. For several months now, he has been watching a mortal girl.”
 “A girl?” she mused. “I didn’t know he hunted girls. His tastes have changed.”
“No, he isn’t hunting her,” Kerrich said. “He just watches her. For some reason, he seems very interested in her.”
She looked away thoughtfully for a moment.
“Kerrich, do you love me?” she whispered, stroking his cheek ever so tenderly.
“With all my heart, mistress,” he vowed, wanting so badly to take her snow white hand and plant a kiss on her fingers.
“I want you to follow this human. Watch her closely, but do not let him know you are watching. I want you to find out what is so special about this girl, what he finds so interesting about her.” She looked down into her lap, with a smile that was an impossible merger of innocence and wickedness. “She will be the key to my revenge.”

REVIEW – MAGIC FOR NOTHING BY SEANAN McGUIRE

magic for nothing cover
The sixth book in New York Times-bestselling Seanan McGuire’s witty urban fantasy InCryptid series about a family of cryptozoologists who act as a buffer between humans and the magical creatures living in secret around us.

“The only thing more fun than an October Daye book is an InCryptid book.” —Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Sookie Stackhouse series

Improbable, adjective:
1. Not very likely to happen; not probable.
2. Probably not a very good idea anyway.
3. See also “bad plan.”

As the youngest of the three Price children, Antimony is used to people not expecting much from her. She’s been happy playing roller derby and hanging out with her cousins, leaving the globe-trotting to her older siblings while she stays at home and tries to decide what she wants to do with her life. She always knew that one day, things would have to change. She didn’t think they’d change so fast.

Annie’s expectations keep getting shattered. She didn’t expect Verity to declare war on the Covenant of St. George on live television. She didn’t expect the Covenant to take her sister’s threat seriously. And she definitely didn’t expect to be packed off to London to infiltrate the Covenant from the inside…but as the only Price in her generation without a strong resemblance to the rest of the family, she’s the perfect choice to play spy. They need to know what’s coming. Their lives may depend on it.

But Annie has some secrets of her own, like the fact that she’s started setting things on fire when she touches them, and has no idea how to control it. Now she’s headed halfway around the world, into the den of the enemy, where blowing her cover could get her killed. She’s pretty sure things can’t get much worse.

Antimony Price is about to learn just how wrong it’s possible for one cryptozoologist to be.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Magic For Nothing (InCryptid) is a hi-flying hit! The characters and world building is well-developed. Antimony Price is the youngest of the Price children, and when her older sister lets the world know about monsters on T.V, she now has to go undercover. She goes overseas to join the Covenant to see what their plans are to come to the U.S. Her skills and her time spent in the circus is the perfect cover going in. By becoming a member of the Covenant, she sees them in a new light. She is a survivor and loves what she does. The other price kids are likable, but Antimony is the best of the bunch. This book will have you on the edge of your seat until the very end. I loved this book and series! This book does not disappoint! I recommend this book and series to everyone. I give MAGIC FOR NOTHING 5/5 STARS.

REVIEW – ETCHED IN BONE BY ANN BISHOP

etched in bone - cover

 New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop returns to her world of the Others, as humans struggle to survive in the shadow of shapeshifters and vampires far more powerful than themselves…

After a human uprising was brutally put down by the Elders—a primitive and lethal form of the Others—the few cities left under human control are far-flung. And the people within them now know to fear the no-man’s-land beyond their borders—and the darkness…

As some communities struggle to rebuild, Lakeside Courtyard has emerged relatively unscathed, though Simon Wolfgard, its wolf shifter leader, and blood prophet Meg Corbyn must work with the human pack to maintain the fragile peace. But all their efforts are threatened when Lieutenant Montgomery’s shady brother arrives, looking for a free ride and easy pickings.

With the humans on guard against one of their own, tensions rise, drawing the attention of the Elders, who are curious about the effect such an insignificant predator can have on a pack. But Meg knows the dangers, for she has seen in the cards how it will all end—with her standing beside a grave…

From the Hardcover edition.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

Etched in Bone (A Novel of the Others) is an Awesome addition to this series! Anne Bishop is a master in world building. Etched in Bone takes up after the last book Marked in Flesh. The Elders have wiped out some of the human run cities to quell the Humans First uprising. Now there are only a small number of human run cities and they are few and far between. The Others have started to populate the cities that were purged. They are putting humans that they trust in those cities to help the Others run them efficiently. Only certain ships are allowed to traverse the waterways to bring supplies to the cities. This book was such a joy to read! This is the last book in this series at the moment, and to my understanding there will be another series branching off to follow the life of another cassandra sangue, or blood prophet. Sometimes it is hard to say good-bye to old friends, and that is how I view these character. So, until the next book or series comes out, I urge you to start this series or get this book to complete your collection. I recommend this book and series to everyone. You will not be disappointed!! I give Etched in Bone 5/5 stars.
